Gudaitis
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 6 rounds.

The most exciting game of round 28 in the NKL took place in Kaunas. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 5th ranked Triobet (17-10) to eighth ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio (17-11) 81-78 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Triobet. 26 personal fouls committed by Triobet helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of center Arturas Gudaitis (208-93) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 14 points and 15 rebounds and forward Marius Grigonis (198-94) who added 23 points during the contest. At the losing side forward Martynas Linkevicius (197-85) responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds. Zalgiris-Sabonio have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Statyba. Triobet at the other side keeps the fifth position with ten games lost. Zalgiris-Sabonio is looking forward to face Perlas-MRU (#11) in Vilnius in the next round where they are favorite. Triobet will play at home against Radviliskis (#14) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Olimpas (20-8) against sixteenth ranked Silute (9-19) on Saturday night. Host Olimpas was defeated by Silute in a tough game in Plunge 82-87. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Olimpas. The winners were led by guard Eivydas Molosciakas (190-93) who scored that evening 25 points and 4 assists and Evaldas Saulys supported him with 12 points and 7 rebounds. Even 27 points (on 13-of-15 shooting from the field) by forward Audrius Maneikis (203-84, college: Motlow St. CC) did not help to save the game for Olimpas. Olimpas' coach Alidas Zukauskas rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Silute moved-up to fifteenth place. Newly promoted Olimpas keeps the second position with eight games lost. They share it with Dzukija. Silute will play against higher ranked Statyba (#6) in Vilnius in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Olimpas will play at home against the league's second-placed Dzukija (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
NKL top team - Mazeikiai (22-6) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they beat eighteenth ranked Nafta Universitetas (5-23) in Klaipeda 93-75. Eigirdas Zukauskas fired 28 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Deividas Anuzis produced 22 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. Mazeikiai maintains first position with 22-6 record. Nafta Universitetas lost ninth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 23 lost games. Mazeikiai will meet at home Suduva-Mantinga (#4) in the next round. Nafta Universitetas will play against Meresta (#10) in Pakruojis and hope to secure a win.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 28: Perlas-MRU lost to Dzukija on the opponent's court 74-91. Statyba managed to outperform Ezerunas-Karys in a home game 93-86. Delikatesas recorded a loss to S.Marciulionio on the road 87-81. Radviliskis was defeated by Suduva-Mantinga on its own court 66-76. Meresta was beaten by Zanavykas in Sakiai 87-72.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 32 points and 7 rebounds by Darius Tarvydas of Statyba.


Dzukija - Perlas-MRU 91-74

Very expected game in Alytus where 11th ranked Perlas-MRU (12-16) was defeated by third ranked Dzukija (20-8) 91-74 on Sunday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Dzukija made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Forward Povilas Sakinis (199-80) fired 20 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Polish center Cezary Trybanski (218-79) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Four Dzukija players scored in double figures. Dzukija's coach Mindaugas Jarusevicius used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Power forward Mantas Virbalas (203-88) produced 15 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists and forward Antanas Udras (202-92) added 21 points and 7 rebounds respectively for lost side. Dzukija have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Olimpas. Loser Perlas-MRU keeps the eleventh position with 16 games lost. Dzukija will meet Olimpas (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Perlas-MRU will play against Zalgiris-Sabonio (#7) in Kaunas and hope to secure a win.
